Join us for the smoothest, sultriest night of Victoria Ska & Reggae Fest XVIII, headlined by Vancouver indie-soul sensations THE BOOM BOOMS. The Boom Booms have been long time friends of the Festival and this time they come to Distrikt to bring us their one-of-a-kind slinky, soulful grooves. There's something magical and warm about this septet's sound, something that's made them a West Coast institution. The perfect tunes to get centre your soul and shake your bones to, with a couple good friends, or huddled up close with your lover. Their Vic Ska & Reggae Fest return is not to be missed!

Teaming up with the Boom Booms for this soulful extravaganza is quickly-rising west-coast star CALEB HART & THE ROYAL YOUTHS. Through his work with Tasman Jude and now as frontman of the Royal Youths, Caleb Hart has established himself as one of Canada's premier reggae voices, roots-reggae smooth to dancehall grimy in the blink of an eye and always armed with a message of peace, love and hope. Nanaimo's BOOMSHACK is set to kick off the night with their untouchably soulful blend of jazz, hard funk and reggae. We can't wait to groove and get close with all the family for what promises to be a hot night like no other.
